    Not sure if they have the plants your after but Bunnings have warranty on their plants I think they call it the perfect plant promise, if plants die within a year of purchase, return the dead plant with receipt for a full refund

    That's awesome! So all plants!? How do you prove it was the plant quality and not lack of care?

    As far as I know it's all plants we had some yucca style plants that died after a few months (I'm guessing it was due to my total lack of gardening skills) and when we went looking for replacement plants the staff member told us to return the old ones, we returned their dead little plants and got a full refund no questions asked

    Thanks! Everyone tried to tell us that big tiles are more on trend for splash backs, but I love the classic subway tile look, and we went for one with a beveled edge to add interest.

    The tap is one of the new PuraTap mixer taps, where the filter water comes through the same hardware so you don't have to cut a hole in your sink for a separate tap. Love the look of it

    And the benches are my favourite. Given that this isn't our forever home, we were tossing up between stone and cheaper options, but the stone was too beautiful to pass up

    Better for resale as people won't look at the kitchen thinking they will have to update something.

    I don't agree large tiles are on trend. Subway tiles are timeless AND very now

    My first time posting in this thread.
    DF and I are about to build our forever family home.
    We have chosen builder and a design and have added everything we want. I've got the quote and I need to cut about 10% from the quote. What are the kinds of things you cut?
    I'm trying to work off the idea that we should do upfront, anything we can't change later. E.g ceiling height, bricks, floor boards.
    Think about cutting things we can always do later or aren't essential like our stone bench tops, double hung windows. Things like that.
    What are your savings principles when building?

    Basic taps etc less power points do you have any tradesman friends? I wouldn't cut things that will save you money in long run eg if you wanted underfloor heating something like that

    I think it might be time I subbed in DH & I just moved into our 'forever' house. It's 16 years old & some things are a bit old-looking or dated so we're excited to renovate it as we go - kitchen and laundry are first up!

    This thread will be great for some inspiration, and I want to decorate all the rooms as we go too, and I'm pretty sure there'll be some hubbers in here with better taste than I

    I haven't built myself but things that dh and I were looking at doing:

    Basic light fittings - you can upgrade each room as you decorate
    Basic kitchen with good bones / appliances - bench tops and cupboard doors can be easily upgraded
    Good tiles but basic carpet
    No painting (my husband's a painter - this saved 6k alone)
    Basic plumbing fittings
    No landscaping

    We were planning on spending the money on good insulation, heating and cooling, double glazed windows - basically anything that made our home more energy efficient and will save money in the long run so that we had the money to upgrade
